What Clients Say...
"Chrissy was involved with our new puppy even before we brought her home as she offered valuable advice on puppy development and training needs and has helped us as a family start off on the right foot with our gorgeous Wheaten Terrier, Freya. Chrissy has been doing puppy home visits helping Freya with toilet training, socialisation, some early puppy foundation training and of course cuddles and care for Freya! This has progressed to puppy 1-2-1 walks now Freya is a little older and Chrissy gives training and socialisation tips from each walk while Freya enjoys a foray out to the local park with on her visit days. We are delighted with the knowledgeable care and support Chrissy has provided - and of course Freya loves her and can't wait to join the group walkies when she is old enough! We recommend Chrissy highly for all your puppy care and training needs!

"After an extensive search on the internet to try and find a dog walker for my puppy, Beau, I came across Muddy Mutts. Chrissy was quick to respond to my query and came to visit us in our home. Her calm and professional manner meant that we all felt at ease from the very first meeting.
Chrissy has been walking Beau a few days a week since and has really helped me to socialise Beau and calm her down. She regularly keeps me up to date with progress reports and provides me with advice when I need it. I couldn't recommend highly enough to anyone looking for someone to care for their pets needs!"
"After a career change I found myself needing someone to walk my dog while I was at work as I could no longer get home to do it myself. It felt like a bit of a minefield looking at the numerous dog walker sites on the internet and a daunting prospect to find someone I could trust not only with my house keys but my precious dog, Milly.
I finally decided on Muddy Mutts and contacted Chrissy. She arranged to come to meet Milly and I. I instantly liked her and was impressed by her calm nature, more importantly Milly took to her straight away! Chrissy has been walking Milly for me now since April and I am thrilled with the service she provides. She picks Milly up each day and takes her for fantastic walks all around Harrogate. I get daily e-mails telling me where they have been and how she has got on. There are also lots of photos so I know that she is having a great time. What a relief! I would recommend Chrissy to anyone who is looking for a dog walker for their precious friend. She is empathetic to the needs of your dog and takes them on super walks!"
"From the very first moment I dealt with Chrissy I was impressed by her professionalism and friendliness. My confidence in leaving Roscoe with her was boosted even more by her sheer enthusiasm for her job, you can really tell she loves her walks and caring for her "family" of pooches.
I'm very sad that Roscoe isn't able to continue on his walks as his confidence has grown in leaps and bounds but with my work bringing me closer to home I no longer require the first class services that Chrissy provides.
In time I hope to start the walks again just for the sheer benefit to Roscoe as I know how much he has enjoyed them.
If you're looking for an honest, reliable, friendly, professional dog walker, you've just found one!"
"When I first met Chrissy I was impressed by her thorough approach to finding out about the personality & needs of my dog. Roxy adores her (rather too much for my liking!!). The Daily Diary updates are great for keeping me in touch with what Roxy has been up to and the photos demonstrate what a fun time she has. In addition, Roxy's recall has improved no end since walking with Chrissy. I am able to go to work secure in the knowledge that Roxy is looking forward to her walk and that she is being well looked after. Chrissy is reliable and professional I would not hesitate to recommend her services."
"Chrissy has been walking my 10 year old Lab/Retriever cross for some months, since I was first given her. I am unable to walk any distance now, so it was essential that I found someone who was reliable, energetic and with whom the dog would enjoy going out on long walks. I am delighted to say that Chrissy fills all these categories. As well, my dog's general behaviour has improved a great deal and I find her more easy to manage on the short walks I am able to do. I thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a dog-walker to approach Chrissy."
"You are doing a great job with Dillon. He loves the variety of walks that you have to offer and he always comes back exhausted (which is what we want)! Thanks Chrissy for a job well done. "
"Chrissy came to our rescue after being badly let down by another dog walker. The service she has given has been absolutely superb, never ever let us down and has always kept us up to date with her brilliant doggy diary. The dogs love her and I know she loves them and her work, I really can't recommend her enough!"
James & Linda, Harrogate
"Chrissy walks our Boxer, Natty, 3 times a week, every week and we are absolutely delighted with the service. Chrissy is reliable, trustworthy and very professional, taking time to get to know each dog she walks to ensure that they are happy and respectful in each others company. The varied walks encompassing woods, open fields and rivers ensure the dogs are stimulated and entertained during their exercise routine with Chrissy and I can go to work 100% confident that I have nothing to worry about and will return home to a happy tired dog....and a very clean one at that! The daily diaries and photos are a great way of keeping up to date with Natty's outings - I would highly recommend Chrissy to anyone."
Chrissy looks after our one year old Bernese Mountain dog, Wilma, twice daily to prepare her for group walks when a little older and a little more confident. From the very start, Chrissy has been professional and is clearly knowledgeable about dogs - she's very calm, understands how to communicate with them and has good training techniques all of which are helping to slowly bring Wilma out of her shell. Chrissy is reliable, flexible and trustworthy. She clearly loves her work, and that shows in the care she gives, not just to Wilma, but also to me in being flexible and extremely helpful.
Thank you Chrissy, you've been a lifesaver! I would highly recommend you to anyone - it's a real joy to know your pet is in the safe hands of someone who so obviously loves dogs!
" Chrissy has been so helpful and patient with Bella, who is very nervous of strangers. Chrissy has spent lots of time getting to know Bella gradually and building up her trust on a one to one basis. We are now at the point where Chrissy can come into the house and take Bella out and even get cuddles, which is amazing progress for Bella. I really appreciate the time and effort, not something all dog walkers are willing to do."
"Chrissy has been walking my 2 greyhounds, Billy and Jess for a few months. It was a big risk for me to trust someone else to look after them, especially since Jess hasn't been well and needs special treatment for a period of time. Chrissy has proved to be a professional, competent and caring person, she looks after my dogs very well and they love her. You get much more than just a dog walker and your dog will be safe and happy. I would recommend her to anyone."
"Delighted with this service, Chrissy worked with my dog through a difficult time when she became untrustworthy off the lead, helping me with training and working together on solutions. She is now trustworthy off the lead again and behaving much better, such a relief and very much down to Chrissy's consistent working with me and with the dog and the excellent communication always putting me in the driving seat with her training. Teamwork is a big deal with Chrissy and this is why we have come through so well. The daily email helped enormously with videos and photos of all of my dog's "best" friends as well as tips and advice when strategies worked.
"Chrissy has been visiting our pointer puppy for a number of weeks and we couldn't be happier with the service she provides. She visits twice a day, giving much needed care, company, training and socialisation while we go to work, safe in the knowledge that our pup is in good hands! Her daily updates are thorough and informative, offering a great insight into our doggy's day and we can see that her time spent on training is really paying off. We would recommend Muddy Mutts to anyone!"
"Warning! Your dog will love Chrissy more than your dog loves you!!! Brodie has been walking with Chrissy since she was 16 weeks old and is now 6 months old - they formed a firm friendship from the outset. Chrissy has also been a positive behavioural influence on Brodie. Chrissy takes a little bit of time on each walk to do some training drills with Brodie and this has had a marked effect on Brodie's obedience. I am a happy daddy with a happy puppy!"
"Chrissy has proved to be a big help. Since my accident, dog day care has become essential. Muddy Mutts has been the tonic our Fell Terrier needed. Giving us peace of mind that he's in great hands during the day."
Kate & André, Harrogate
"I saw how happy and well handled Chrissy's own dog, Sky, was so I felt worry free knowing that Dexter, our Cockerpoo, was in good hands. She asked sensible questions that previous dog walkers hadn't even thought of. Much to Dexter's delight he had a good run round Nidd Gorge then he was cleaned down and tucked up in to bed ready for our return. Chrissy even sent pictures to my phone of him having a little paddle which was a nice touch. One happy little dog."
"As a new puppy owner it has been fantastic to have Chrissy helping out with puppy visits. I can relax knowing that Barney is in good hands and that he has fun and training whilst I'm out - or can sleep if that's what he needs! Chrissy is lovely - enthusiastic, helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. I feel we are in really good hands and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
"I have known Chrissy for many years and can recommend her as a very capable and trustworthy dog walker and pet carer - she has been walking my now geriatric dog for several years. She has a natural affinity with animals - cats & horses included which shines through. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chrissy to prospective clients...she is in my book 'the best' so why would you want anyone else for your very precious pets?"
"We needed care for one elderly but robust hen. Chrissy asked all the right questions about care and routine so we knew nothing was forgotten. It was lovely to hear by text that all was well and Chrissy was enjoying the eggs! Such a good service, we will use again and highly recommend. We were very grateful , thank you."
Andrew & Cathy, Harrogate
" I felt totally confident that my cats were well cared for while we were away and that I had no problem handing over my house keys to Chrissy, thank you."
